CHILDWATCH
A GIRL LIKE ME
REVISITING THE DOLL STUDY
Marian Wright Edelman
President and Founder, Children's Defense Fund


In her extraordinary new
award-winning documentary
A Girl Like Me, 17-year-old
New York high school stu-
dent and filmmaker Kiri
Davis recreates the famous
"doll study" that was cited in
Brown v. Board of Education
to demonstrate the harmful
effects of racism and racial
segregation on young chil-
dren. Kiri says she wanted to
test "how far we've come" in
developing positive self-
image and self-esteem
among our children. But
what she learned from the
children in her study was that
we haven't really progressed
much or at all.
The doll study was origi-
nally designed in 1939 by
pioneering Black psycholo-
gist Dr. Kenneth Clark and
his wife and partner Dr.
Mamie Phipps Clark. The
Clarks would show a young
child two dolls, one Black.
and one White, and then ask
them which doll was pretty,
which was nice, and which
was bad. They were not sur-
prised to find the White chil-
dren they interviewed over-
whelmingly preferred the
White dolls. But when they
interviewed Black children,
they found two-thirds of
them also said the White
dolls were the nice, pretty
ones, and the Black dolls
were bad. By the time Brown
v. Board of Education
appeared before the Supreme
Court in 1954, the Clarks had
collected years' worth of data


from these studies that led
them to conclude racial seg-
regation and negative images
of Blacks had damaged many
Black children's sense of
identity and self-esteem.
But how would these
results hold up 50 years after
Brown? This was Kiri's
question when she recreated
the experiment-and her
documentary shows the sad
answer she found. In her
sample of 21 Black four- and
five-year-olds at a Harlem
child care center, 15 children
preferred the White doll-
the same ratio the Clarks
found in the 1940s and
1950s. How painful it is to
watch the interviews with the
children and hear their honest
and'simple answers:"Why do
you think this doll is the nice
one?" "Because she's
White." "Why do you think
this doll is the bad one?"
"Because she's Black." One
of the children who has just
said she thinks the Black doll
is bad is shown answering a
follow-up question: "Which
doll looks like you?" The lit-
tle girl hesitates, touches
both, and then slowly pushes
the Black doll forward.:
In the film,. Kiri also
inter ie\ s several of her own
peers-teenaged Black
girls-about their ideas of,
Black beauty. These girls'
have all grown up in the post-
"Black is Beautiful" era, but
their intelligent, thoughtful
comments share a different
message: They all say that


since they were very young
they've been exposed to the
old ideas that light skin and
long straight hair make a
Black girl pretty. One girl
says she always assumed she
was ugly because she was the
darkest person in her family.
Another remembers how dis-
mayed her mother was when
the girl first tried wearing her
hair in a natural style that
made her look "too African."
The girls talk about friends
who've tried soaking in a tub
with a capful of bleach in the
water and relatives who start
using bleaching cream, on
their daughters at age six-
stories that could easily have
been shared by Black girls 50
and maybe even 100 years
ago. How sad to see that
some of us are still passing
on the same physically and
emotionally damaging Black
versions of the beauty myth.
And for the small girls and
boys in the film who said
they would rather play with
the White doll, how disap-
pointing to see that almost 70
years after the Clarks started
their studies, adults have not
been able to give them a
stronger sense of positive
self-identity and self-respect.
In a provocative op-ed
piece published in The
Miami Herald after Kiri's
film was released, columnist
Leonard Pius. Jr. argues that
today Black adults, share
more of the blame for the
results. After all. he says, up
until a certain point Blacks
had very little say about the
negative stereotypes of us
that were perpetuated in the
media and popular culture.
But what'sts different now
is that African Americans


are, themselves, often the
makers and gatekeepers. And
under our watch, the images
have, in many ways, gotten
worse. To surf the music
video channels is to be
immersed in black culture as
conceived by a new genera-
tion, a lionization of pimps
and gold diggers, hustlers
and thugs who toss the N-
word with a gusto that would
do the Klan proud.
It's an excuse to say we're
only buying lies we have
internalized, lies that become
self-fulfilling prophecy.
That's all well and good, but
the moment you're able to
understand that you've been
lied to is the moment you
bear responsibility for prom-
ulgating some truth in reply.
That too few of us are willing
to accept that responsibility
is driven home every time
one of those black children
chooses a white doll."
How will adults respond
by taking more responsibility
for teaching our children the
truth? This point actually
reinforces one of the Clarks'
observations from the origi-
nal studies: Black children
with positive Black role
models didn't .reject the
Black dolls. The solution for
that is the same at it was 50
years ago-to make sure
more Black children have
those strong Black role mod-
els. And for some of that, at
least, the ball's in our court. I
am so proud ofKiri Davis for
creating a powerful and
remarkable film about these
critical questions.

STAY


.* ,


Away in a manger, no
crib for a bed.
The little Lord Jesus
laid down his sweet
head.
The stars in the bright
sky looked down where
he lay,
The little Lord Jesus
asleep on the hay.

The cattle are lowing,
the baby' awakes,
But little Lord Jesus no
crying he makes.
I love thee, Lord Jesus!
Look down from
the sky,
And stay by my side
until morning is nigh.



0 holy Child of
Bethlehem!
Descend to us, we pray;
Cast out our sin and
enter in,
Be born in us to-day.
We hear the Christmas
angels
The great glad tidings
tell;
0 come to us, abide
with us,
SOur Lord Emmanuel!

"There's Always Something

Happening On The First Coast"


Kicking Off The Holiday Season With Sam Hall
You know the holiday season is soon to arrive when
you receive the annual invitation from the affable and
party host extraordinaire Sam Hall. When Sam Hall
gives a party, it's really, really, really a party! And the
2006 edition was just as fabulous as always.
Act I: The party traditionally begins with a perform-
ance of a very talented musician while guest are arriv-
ing and greeting one another and enjoying hors d'oeu-
vres and cocktails, appreciating the creative works of a
chosen artists, followed by dinner (more on that later).
This year's music was presented by saxophonist
Halstead Arnold who was absolutely superb and the
featured visual artist was Mrs. Marsha Hatcher.
And now for the edibles: First there was the whole
'suckling' pig featured in the center of the buffet table,
surrounded by seafood, pasta and anti-pasta fare. At a
side buffet there were stone crab claws and shrimp. As
always there was the dessert buffet and libations of
every brand and combination.
Act II: When you have eaten all that you can possi-
bly manage to it. You hear a change of music which sig-
nals, it's time to dance. Of course, after eating so much,
what a wonderful way to burn off the calories one has
overly consumed.
Act III: When you've eaten all you can, danced as
long as your 'tootsies' will allow you take a break and
continue on wanting more and more. I must admit I've
never been there for the end of Act III. Maybe next year
we'll have to give it -try. That is if we are one of the
fortunate invitees. Let's hope so for you haven't been to
a party until you've been to a Sam Hall party!

College Sports Receive Mixed Marks for Diversity in Latest UCF Report Card


By Chad Binnett, UCF
News

College sports contin-
ue to provide more
opportunities for women
and minorities than pro-
fessional sports offer,
but universities received
failing grades for diver-
sity in top positions such
as athletics director and
football coach, accord-
ing to a report card
issued Wednesday by the
University of Central
Florida's Institute for.
Ethics and Diversity in
Sport.
The Racial and
Gender Report Card by
institute director Richard
Lapchick and Jenny
Brenden assigned col-
lege sports a 'B-minus'
for racial diversity and a
'B' for gender. The over-
all grade of 'B' was the
same that college sports
received last year.
College sports
received an 'F' for racial
diversity in Division I
head football coaches,
conference commission-
ers, university presidents
and athletics directors.
The report card,
which is primarily based
on data from the 2004-
05 academic year with
some updates, examined
data for 1,025 schools in
divisions I, II and III.
"The institute wants


to illustrate how impor-
tant it is to have a
diverse organization
involving individuals
who happen to be of a
different race or gen-
der," the report stated.
"This element of diversi-
ty can provide a differ-
ent perspective, and pos-
sibly a competitive
advantage for a win in
the board room as well
as on the athletic fields
of play."
The report praised the
National Collegiate
Athletic Association for
hiring a vice president of
diversity and inclusion
in 2005 and for estab-
lishing. a Diversity
Leadership Strategic
Planning Committee.
The NCAA received
high marks for the racial
diversity of Division I
men's basketball coach-
es, an all-time high of,
25.2 percent of whom
were African-American,
and for male and female
student-athletes.
The percentage of
African-American play-
ers in Division I men's
basketball was 57.8 per-
cent. It was 45.4 percent
in football and 6.5 per-
cent in baseball. Among
women, 43.7 percent of
Division I basketball
players and 26 percent
of .track and field and
cross country athletes
were African-American.

directors at Division I-A schools. (Photo: UCF
News)


The NCAA did not
fare as well in the diver-
sity of top-level posi-
tions such as university
presidents, athletics
directors and head foot-
ball coaches. According
to .the report, 94.1 per-
cent of university presi-
dents of Division I-A
schools were white.
Whites also held 93.3
percent of the Division
I-A athletics director.

Shuttle Blasts Off In Rare Night Launch


Mission Specialist Robert
Curbeam A veteran of two
space shuttle flights, Curbeam
conducted three spacewalks
before being assigned as mis-
sion specialist for STS-116.


The Space Shuttle Discovery lifts off on mission STS-
116 at the Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral,
FL., Saturday, Dec. 9, 2006. It is the first night launch of
a shuttle in four years. (AP Photo/Dave Martin)


CAPE CANAVERAL, FL -
The flames from space shut-
tle Discovery lit up the dark-
ened sky Saturday. The
launch was the first at night
since Endeavour's flight in
November 2002 and only
the 29th in darkness of
NASA's 117 total shuttle
'launches.
NASA had required
daylight launches for three
flights after the Columbia
accident in 2003 so that


clear images could be taken
of the external fuel tank.
This mission is
aimed at completing a three-
year race to finish construc-
tion on the orbiting outpost
before shuttles are retired in
2010.
During their 12-day
mission, Discovery's crew
will rewire the space station,
deliver an $11 million addi-
tion to the space lab and
bring home one of the space

Operation Holiday Cheer continued from A-]
The St. Johns County Sheriff's Office have arrested fourteen adults and two juvenile as part
of phase 2 of "Operation Holiday Cheer". Four more are sought on felony drug charges. The
investigation started about four months ago after they received numerous complaints of alleged
drug activity in the West Augustine area. Undercover detectives and others purchased nar-
cotics during this time from the suspects who were targeted as active street level and mid level
cocaine base dealers. Many of those sold drugs within 1,000 feet of a school or place of wor-
ship which enhanced the charges.
Those arrested were Charles Brown Wone Lavelle Cockfield, Derrick A. Frazier, Araichio
Crooms, Tracy Russell, Cleveland Powell III, Alexander Stevens, Tyrone Belljohnson, Angela
Quillen, Rockkell Hubert, and Yolanda Bell the weekend. Three others were arrested. They
are Rondell Fairell, Kelvin J. Jackson and Carl Thomas. Four others are still being sought. -
They are Zachariah Ferguson, Dantaye Meachem, Gary L. Gibbs Jr., and Wayne Pellicer.
Those arrested are from St. Johns County and Duval County and charged with sale or posses-
sion of cocaine with intent to sell and bonds range from $50,000 to $250,000 per person with
the average bond of $100,000.
Murders continued from A-1

The third shooting Wednesday was on the Westside about 9:00 p.m. in the 5700 block of Stuart
Avenue where 14-year-old Corey Martin was shot in the stomach and his gold teeth were stolen.
Martin is still hospitalized and an arrest has not been made.
JCCI- continued from A-1

for Jacksonville shows the unemployment rates and rates for children living in low-income
households are more than double for black households than for white, while their median
income is 61 percent that of white households.
Neighborhoods and housing: Home ownership is increasing in the black community but it
appears blacks use subprime lenders.
In health care, progress has been made as far as heart disease, cancer and stroke deaths but
there is a rising infant death rate. There is still a wide gap of HIV cases, even though there are
fewer cases. New HIV cases for blacks is seven times as high as the rate for whites.
Justice and the legal system: The gaps are closing in inmate admissions and juvenile delin-
quency referral rates. However, for those youth committed as delinquents, the gap is widen-
ing.
Politics and civil engagement: The long-term gains in voter registration slipped in 2000.

Actress Gives $1 Million to Arts School

Jada Pinkett Smith has donat-
ed $1 million to the Baltimore
School for the Arts, asking that
its new theater be dedicated to
classmate Tupac Shakur, who
was shot and killed in 1996.
The 35-year-old actress grad-
uated from the high school in
1989.
"It means a lot when you're a
teacher and your most famous
alumnus comes back to give a
donation," said Donald Tupac Shakur Jada Pinkett Smith
Chicken, head of the school's theater department since its founding in 1980 and Pinkett Smith's
former theater teacher. "It really says a lot to the community that the school matters in people's
lives."
The donation from the Will and Jada Smith Family Foundation, which is based in Baltimore,
will be used for renovation and expansion. The school, which announced the donation Monday,
said it will name its new theater for Pinkett Smith.
Pinkett Smith is married to Will Smith, who stars in the new movie "The Pursuit of
Happyness" with their 8-year-old son, Jaden.
The couple had previously given $112,500 to the school.
When a $30 million expansion program is finished in the fall of 2007, the school will increase
its enrollment from 316 to 375 students.
S Karen Banfield Evans, executive director of the Smith Family Foundation, and Pinkett
Smith's aunt, said the actress was moved by the school's advances since she graduated.
Pinkett Smith wanted the theater named for Shakur because of the friendship they developed
at the school. The rapper died after a drive-by shooting in Las Vegas.
The actress has appeared in movies such as "Ali," which starred her husband, and "Collateral,"
and she was the voice of the hippo Gloria in the 2005 animated film "Madagascar."
"The Pursuit of Happyness," a Sony Pictures release, opens in theaters Friday.


Asthma Rates Declining Nationally, Though Not

Leveling Off for Blacks, Study Finds

The childhood asthma mortality rate in the U.S. is declining, even though the rate of chil-
dren diagnosed with the disease is "at historically high levels," according to a CDC report
released Tuesday, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. The report -- by Lara Akinbani, a
CDC medical officer -- found that after steady increases from 1980 through 1998, overall asth-
ma death rates have declined since 1999 for children of all races ages 17 and younger. Akinbami
attributed the decline in the asthma mortality rate to a "change in the way causes of deaths are
coded" by CDC, improved medications, increased public awareness of asthma and its dangers,
and more children being taken to emergency departments for asthma-related problems. The
report also found that the childhood asthma mortality rate is not declining among black chil-
dren, who are six times as likely as white children to die from the disease. The reason for the
lack of declining mortality rate among black children might be because they have a more severe
form of the disease, live in more polluted or higher-poverty areas, or do not benefit from ediu-
cation and medical advances to control asthma symptoms, the Journal-Constitution reports. The
report also found that:

Puerto Rican children have the highest prevalence of asthma of all racial and ethnic groups, a
rate 140% higher than for non-Hispanic white children;

Mexican children have low reported rates;

Black children were least likely to be treated for asthma during ambulatory care visits and in
theED;

Black children have a 260% higher rate of ED visits and a 250% higher hospitalization rate for
asthma than white children; and

Hispanic children were less likely to use ambulatory care and had more ED visits than white
children but far fewer visits than black children.

According to the study, "Considering the evidence that minority children do not receive the
same level and quality of ambulatory health are for asthma, the disparity in ambulatory care
use'may contribute to the disparities in ED use, hospitalization and death" (Hendrick, Atlanta
Journal-Constitution, 12/13).
The silent killer ... carbon monoxide

With the winter season nipping at doors,.families will begin to heat their homes using a yari-
ety of fuel burning appliances and other methods. These fuel burning appliances mae include
furnaces, ranges, or room heaters that use natural gas, liquefied petroleum (LP gas), oil,
kerosene, coal, or wood. Malfunctioning or improperly used fuel burning appliances can pro-
duce Carbon Monoxide. CO is a gas generated whenever fuels such as gas, oil, kerosene, wood
or charcoal is burned.
In 2005, the American Association of Poison Control Centers reported 59 fatalities related to
CO. According to Deborah H. Smith, RN, the educator coordinator for the Florida Poison
Information Center Jacksonville, "The Florida Poison Information Center Jacksonville
received 17 calls related to 23 exposures to Carbon Monoxide from December 2005 through
February 2006. Thirteen of these patients received care in an emergency room department."
Play it safe this winter by learning how to recognize CO poisoning symptoms. CO is an odor-
less, colorless, and deadly gas ... hence, it is called the silent killer. Dr. Jay Schauben, the direc-
tor of the Florida Poison Information Center Jacksonville, states, "The initial symptoms of CO
poisoning may mimic those similar to the flu or food poisoning, and people may not attribute
these symptoms to CO poisoning. At low to moderate levels, the individual can experience
shortness of breath, headaches, sleepiness, dizziness, mental confusion, nausea, or feel faint. As
the level of exposure increases, disorientation, unconsciousness and death are possible."
To prevent CO poisoning, the Florida Poison Information Center Jacksonville offers the fol-
lowing tips:
Have all fuel burning appliances in your home inspected by a trained, qualified profes-
sional at the beginning of each heating season.
Read and follow all manufacturers' instructions for use of any fuel burning appliance in
or around your home.
Have your chimney checked and cleaned every year.
Properly vent all fuel burning appliances.
Never use your gas range or oven for heating
Never use a portable generator, a charcoal grill or barbecue grill --- even in your


fireplace --- inside your home.
Install a battery operated CO detector in your home and replace the batteries when
you change the time on your clocks during each spring and fall.

For more information on CO poisoning, log onto www.fpicjax.org., and click Poison Info.
If you are experiencing symptoms possibly related to being exposed to Carbon Monoxide or
when in doubt, call the Poison Information Center toll free 24 hours a day, at 1-800-222-1222
(Voice/TDD). The healthcare professionals at the center will immediately respond to poison
emergencies and answer poison-related questions about Carbon Monoxide, and other potential-
ly dangerous substances.
The Florida Poison Information Center Jacksonville is a cooperative effort among the
University of Florida College of Medicine, Shands Jacksonville, the University of Florida
Health Science Center Jacksonville, and the State of Florida, Department of Health, Children's
Y medical Services. :

When Diamonds Are Not a Girl's Best Friend


By Lorinda Bullock, NNPA
National Correspondent

WASHINGTON
(NNPA) During the holi-
day season, enamored
boyfriends and husbands
often choose diamonds to
make a romantic statement.
But this season, the Warner
Brothers film, "Blood
Diamond" and hip-hop
mogul/ entrepreneur Russell
Simmons are using the gems
to make a global statement
about diamond mining in
Africa.
And not everyone under-
stands what that statement is
- or agrees with it.
Last week, Simmons
returned from a nine-day
"fact-finding" mission in
Africa, where he visited
some of Africa's largest dia-
mond mines in Botswana
and South Africa, promoting
the use of conflict-free dia-
monds. He also announced
his "Green Initiative" that
will give 25 percent of net
proceeds from his Simmons
Jewelry Company's men's
line to schools and hospitals
of African mining communi-
ties through 'the Diamond
Empowerment Fund.
New to the jewelry busi-
ness, Simmons' launched
the Simmons Jewelry
Company in 2003, one of
few, if any, major Black-
owned jewelry companies in
the world. So far, co-owner
Kimora Lee Simmons' Baby
Phat and "Hello Kitty"
women's lines have grossed
$10 million this year, he
said.
In 2003, government,
non-government and dia-
mond industry officials
came up with the Kimberly
Process Certification
Scheme to keep conflict dia-
monds from being sold on
the international market.
Conflict diamonds are gen-
erally defined as those
mined in certain zones in
Africa and are used to fuel
or fund civil wars.
Simmons grappled with
the definition of "conflict-
free" in an interview with
the NNPA News Service.
"I don't know what con-
flict-free means... Still it's a
conflict when you're stand-


ing on a natural resource,
whether it be a diamond, or
oil, or uranium, or gold-
anything-and you're poor.
And so that's what Africa
has, so we want to find
places and examples where
natural resources really ben-
efit the people," he said.
During Simmons' visit
that included meetings with
a number of African digni-
taries and former South
African president and anti-
apartheid leader, Nelson
Mandela, Simmons said he
was particularly impressed
with one country and it's
treatment its people.
"Certainly the example
in Botswana, where the
number one diamond mine
in the world exists, was
inspiring," he said. "(It's) a
place where 35 to 40 percent
of the people have HIV and
yet they have the best HIV
programs in the world and
they're really doing a lot of
good work there...All the
education, the schools-just
about everyone in the coun-
try is funded by the
resources of the diamonds.
Eighty-five percent of all the
profits that come out of the
ground go back to the
Botswanian government,"
Simmons said.
According to the
Embassy of Botswana's
Web site, just 30 years ago,
Botswana was one of the 20
poorest countries in the
world. In 2000, Botswana
exported $2.2 billion worth
of diamonds. The country of
1.7 million people has been
recognized by Transparency
International as having the
"least corrupt government in
Africa."
Simmons says while
some nations are still using
conflict diamonds that
finance, rebel movements,
the majority of diamonds on
the market are conflict-free,
including his products.
The Kimberley Process
has encouraged about 45
nations to voluntarily follow
strict regulations designed to
weed out conflict diamonds
from international com-
merce.
: According to the
Kimberley Process, its par-
ticipants account for 99.8


percent of the global pro-
duction of rough diamonds.
How those numbers are
perceived troubles Mel
Foote, executive director of
Constituency for Africa, and
Amnesty International's
Bonnie Abaunza.
"I think there are some
other dynamics at work out
there that deals with Africa
and natural resources and it
deals with oil, it deals with
gold, it deals with timber, it
deals with humans, us,
slaves," Foote said.
"This has been the. story
of Africa for hundreds of
years. To isolate diamonds
and say 'Oh, we're going to
get that one under control' I
think is somewhat naive."
Foote said while dia-
monds are important to the
"hip hop crowd and White
people...it don't deal with
most of us."
Instead, he believes
American investors need to
take a closer look at Africa's
oil.
"Right now we get 10
percent of our oil from
Africa. That number is
expected to go to 25 percent
by 2010. So if we want to
continue to drive our cars,
we're going to need a new
kind of relationship with
Africa," he said.
As a human-rights advo-
cate, Abaunza said she has
to be hopeful that 100 per-
cent of the world's dia-
monds will eventually be
"conflict-free," but agreed
the numbers can be mislead-
ing.
"There's a lot of corrup-
tion, but when I hear 98 per-
cent, 99 percent, the prob-
lem that we have with these
numbers is how do you then
justify that number with $22
million coming out of the
Ivory Coast? Millions com-
ing out of eastern Congo,
illicit diamonds, maybe any-
where from 50 million com-
ing out of South America
from Venezuela and Brazil
(that) make it into the inter-
national marketplace? We
try and quantify a number
like that, it's a bit disingenu-
ous because then you've got
these hard numbers and $23
million translates into a lot.
of human rights violations,"


she said.
Simmons agreed the
Kimberley Process could
stand to be improved.
"There's still issues," he
said. "I'm not saying it's
good, it's perfect, it's just
better than it was and a lot,
lot better."
The movie "Blood
Diamond" has also raised
the issue of conflict dia-
monds and its effects on the
people .of Africa. The story
is set in Sierra Leone during
its devastating and grue-
some civil war in the 1990s.
It opened last week, days
after Simmons' return from
Africa and announcement.
Simmons disagrees with
the portrayal of the diamond
industry in the film starring
Leonardo DiCaprio and
Djimon Hounsou, and had
strong words for the film's
producers.
"Warner Brothers owes
Africa an apology. They're
spreading a message at the
end of the day don't buy dia-
monds. Warner Brothers
owes an apology for not
making it clear enough
that's not the Africa today,"
he said.
"If you're going to spend
$200-and-something million
on a movie, you ought to
know at least what the cli-
mate is today... I don't mind
people trying to make it bet-
ter, but'I mind people giving
the misinformation out
there."
Abaunza, who is the
director of Artists for
Amnesty, a division of
Amnesty International that
works specifically with
entertainers and the enter-
tainment industry, said the
movie won't cause the boy-
cott of diamonds Simmons
fears.
"I don't think either the
studio or the filmmakers
misrepresented anything and
here's why. The movie is
historically contextualized.
It is clear in the movie this is
about the war in Sierra,
Leone-a decade long war
in the 1990s."
She said of the numerous
screenings to diverse groups
including college students.
Amnesty members and oth-
ers, viewers understood that.


Russell Simmons launches Green Initiative during a
press conference in NY last week.


"The people that I have
spoken to and the reaction
I'm getting is people aren't
interpreting this as this is the
current situation in Sierra
Leone. So they understand
that it's framed in a histori-
cal context and that was
always the intent of the
movie. I don't believe that
there is an apology neces-
sary."
Abaunza said prior to his
trip, Amnesty International
helped brief Simmons and
his delegation that included
Benjamin Chavis, the CEO
and president of Simmons'
Hip Hop Action Network.
She said Simmons was
briefed about other African.
nations that aren't benefiting
from the diamond industry
as much as Botswana. She
encourages Simmons to also
visit these areas like the
Congo, where "back-break-
ing" artisanal mining is tak-
ing place. Abaunza said arti-
sanal mining consists of
workers strictly picks and
shovels.
"In countries like the
DRC, Sierra Leone, Angola,
those workers only make $1
to $2 a day and it's all the
middle men and the traders
who are making a lot more
money on these diamonds,"
she said.
Simmons was also
informed that while the
Kimberley Process is a posi-
tive achievement, it only
applies to rough diamonds
that haven't even been pol-
ished yet, so Abaunza said
even more must be done to
stiffen regulations all stages.
Foote, who .has also
encouraged Simmons in the
past to \isit Africa, said he
hopes Simmons' ne\\
involvement with Africa
won't be a phase.


"I'm not knocking
Russell because I think he's
doing a lot of good things.
But from where I sit, I don't
see him fully engaged. I see
him engaged in the periph-
ery of it. I see him engaged
because right now every-
body's talking about it. But
six months from now, if we
don't do something to deep-
en that involvement, he
won't be involved at all," he
said.
Like Abaunza, Foote
thinks Simmons' should
visit the more turbulent
areas, but he's pleased
Simmons is bringing atten-
tion to the cause.
"I'm glad people like
Kanye West and Russell
Simmons are shedding a lit-
tle light. Because whenever
they speak, lots of the
young, hip hop crowd lis-
tens to them. So we need
that to happen but \\e need
them to get further invohled
and further engaged in the
effort to help Africa and that
goes beyond the flavor of
the month."
This season, when pur-
chasing that diamond for
someone special this season.
Abaunza said there's a lot to
think about, but first, ask
jewelers to see certificates
that prove the\ are
Kimberley Process certified.
She said most major jewel-
ers can provide them.
"If they can't or they
won't, take your business
elsewhere. There are plenty
of jewelers who are well-
informed and %\ant to do the
right thing and have the cer-
tificates and those are the
people who should be get-
ting the business."


Race Debate at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore Turns Ugly


By Sean Yoes, Special to
the NNPA from Afro
Newspapers

BALTIMORE (NNPA)
SLast month Johns
Hopkins University stu-
dent Justin H. Park was
suspended from the
school until January 2008.
He is the the author and
distributor of the
"Halloween in the Hood"
party invitation character-
ized as racist by many in
the community. A group
of *Hopkins students
protested Park's punish-
ment, which-they claim
impacts free speech on the
campus, and they demon-
strated in a manner simi-
lar to that of the school's
Black Student Union,
which originally protested
the Halloween in the
Hood incident.
The party hosted by
Park's fraternity Sigma
Chi, encouraged revelers
to wear, "regional cloth-
ing from our locale... fur
coats, bling bling ice ice
grills, hoochie hoops,
white tees" and character-


ized Baltimore as, "the
HIV pit" and "the mother
f---ing ghetto."
Just beneath the sur-
face of the discourse on
campus race relations and,
the free speech protest lies
a litany of racially
charged threats and accu-
sations being hurled
through cyberspace at
Hopkins' BSU and its
president Christina
Chapman.
"You should be
ashamed of yourself for
being an attention seeking
whore who ruined a kid's
education as well as the
most racially diverse fra-
ternity. By playing the
race card you forced the
university to violate our
right to free speech. I
hope you know that most
of the university hates
you," wrote Wayne
Atwell, a White Hopkins
student, in an email to
Chapman.
Most of Chapman's
detractors aren't as bold as
Atwell, who attached a
picture of himself wearing
H cape, a crown and


wielding a sword.
(According to Chapman,
Atwell was admonished
for the e-mail by Hopkins'
administration and he
later apologized to her by
email.) The vast majority
of the verbal attacks lev-
eled against the soon to be
21-year-old senior and the
BSU have been transmit-
ted anonymously and in
most cases via Hopkins'
internet forum "The Daily
Jolt."
The gutless adminis-
tration is going to cave to
at least some of the
demands of those idiot
protesters. Apparently
that b---- Christina
Chapman won't shut her
mouth either," someone
anonymously wrote on
Nov. 3 under the subject
"Cowards" on the internet
forum. Yet, despite the
vitriol aimed at her,
Chapman, a biomedical
engineering major, seems
undaunted.
"A lot of the com-
ments-they only both-
er me in the sense that I
feel like people have such


a great misunderstanding
of issues of diversity,"
said Chapman. "The stu-
dents on campus say that
we Black students tar-
nished the school's repu-
tation like the Black stu-
dents aren't also part of
the school."
Chapman did find at
least one "Daily Jolt" post
which discusses Hopkins'
decision to suspend Park,
"particularly important to
point out."
"If I do something I'll
be labeled a racist...I can
make cogent arguments
about how it is an injus-
tice that a member of the
BSU was on the conduct
board. However, that will
label me as a racist." The
anonymous author ram-
bles a bit more about the
conduct board then anoth-
er unidentified writer
posts the following: "Well
... we could always put on
masks and lynch 'em ...
y'know ... for the sake of
hiding our identities."
Perhaps, the person
who wrote this was
attempting:.to be irrever-


ent or humorous; it's
impossible to know for,
much of the dialogue
takes place anonymously
in the vacuum of cyber-
space.
Chapman believes it is
indicative of systemic
racism and ignorance at
Hopkins. "A lot of people
want to be ignorant. There
were two open forums on
campus and not one per-
son who was against what
the BSU did--they did
not get up," she said.
"They just want to create
forums for people who
think like them. But, with
issues like this its impor-
tant for there to be an
exchange of appropriate
information ... I'm just
convinced that they don't
want to learn-they
don't want anyone to tell
them anything that they
don't agree with."
Chapman argues Park
and his supporters free
speech protest is disingen-
uous-she claims they
"don't take Black people
seriously."
"He [Park wrote some-


thing in our school
newsletter where he was
justifying it .saying,
'Baltimore does have a
high rate of HIV,
Baltimore is
dangerous.'Those are
things we know especially
in the Black community
... but, that's not the point.
It's not whether what he
said is or isn't accurate,
it's the fact that he thinks
it's funny."
Despite the controver-
sy swirling around her
Chapman plans to gradu-
ate next spring. However,
she seems resigned to the
belief, that Hopkins will
be grappling with race
matters long after she's
gone just as the country's
struggle with race could
be indefinite. "I just real-
ize how much of a
tremendous problem it is.
We've been pushing for
diversity training. But, I
know that alone is not
going to do it ... I just feel
like this coming out of
racism is going to be such
a long process in this
country." :

Don't Get Scrooged
(NAPSI)-While the holidays can bring out the
worst in people, there are a few ways to keep yourself from
getting Scrooged. The first ^
tip is to read "Don't Get -
Scrooged," a festive hand- t**|!
book on how to avoid, '
appease and even win over "
the Scrooges who haunt
your holidays year after .
year.
Written by Richard A in-l.
Carlson, author of the best- -'
selling "Don't Sweat the,
Small Stuff," this book ,...
offers practical and enter-
taining solutions to the problems of Scrooges, whatever
form they take--whether they're bad drivers, rude sales-
clerks, grumpy bosses or stubborn in-laws.
Here are three of Carlson's tips to survive last-
minute gift shopping, awkward family reunions, the office
Christmas party and noisy neighbors:
1. Ban worry from your holidays. You'll be making
room for much nicer things--like the pleasure of the
moment--when you do.
2. Reclaim your time. Prune away situations and
Scrooges that are unpleasant. You don't have to go to Aunt
Bessie's party every year. Savor the traditions you love.
3. Dodge the oddballs. Modify your routine to steer
clear of scroogey situations. A little avoidance can go a long
way during the holidays!
Arm yourself for battle against bad behavior and
experience a happier holiday season. The book is available
everywhere books are sold.


Offering Hope During The Holiday Season
(NAPSI)-The cards you buy this holiday season can
offer a gift of hope-by helping to find a cure for children fac-
ing a potentially fatal disease.
Harrison Strickler of Richmond, Va., was 6 years old
when his parents, Leslie and Al, heard the words, "Your child
has leukemia." The diagnosis sent the family reeling.
But after two grueling years, Harrison is back to
doing all the things he loves-including riding his bike-thanks
to treatments made possible by years of research.
More research is needed. Despite advances in treat-
ment, every year more children die from this disease than any
other form of cancer.
"People should know that their support really gives
kids like me hope when we're going through something like
this, and it made me feel better when I was in the hospital
knowing that people were trying to help find cures," said
Harrison.
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society is on a mission
to help make Harrison's wish come true by funding research
seeking better treatments and cures for leukemia, lymphoma,
Hodgkin's disease and myeloma, and improving the quality of
life of patients such as Harrison and their families.
Families and businesses all across the country can
help by purchasing the Society's holiday cards.
Twenty percent of the proceeds will go to support the
Society's mission. For more information on how to purchase
these cards, visit www.lls.holidaycardstore.net.
"I hope that before I get.to be a grown-up they can
find a cure so no more kids get sick like I did," said Harrison.


Jacksonville, FL -- Could

Jacksonville, FL -- Could
a single book be the key to con- ,:
vincing kids that a life of crime is .
no life at all? ..
What could make the dif- 8i ''
ference with this book is that it's a
collection of letters written by Ii
teenagers serving time in jail or -
prison. It's called "If These Chains A book with letters written by teenagers serving
Could Talk." time in jail or prison.
City and Educational Leaders want to get it in the hands of every middle school
student in Duval County.
Today thousands of dollars were donated to make that happen. It is the book that
comniunity leaders hope will get through to kids. Letters from teens behind bars, urging
other teens not to end up behind bars with them.
Jacksonville Sheriff John Rutherford, pledged 25-thousand dollars of confiscat-
ed drug money to buy the books for middle school students. "Many times it's not just
the message that's important but the messenger but in the case it's other youth who have
been there, done that and the target audience understands that."
Duval County student Paul Collins, read the book in his class and believes the
book could do a lot of good in the hands of his classmates. "The book had a big impres-
sion on me. It solidified what I was thinking about not going to jail and not experienc-
ing that kind of life."
"Kids learning from kids is a very powerful thing." School Board Member Betty
Burney put the book together after she started mentoring to kids in jail. She asked them
to write a letter to their peers about the lessons they've learned about the mistakes
they've made. She.said the even those young men who wrote the letters will benefit from
knowing their words are making a difference. "Because you can also get in trouble in
jail so it will make them not get into trouble in jail and come out and do some positive
things."
Educator Jonathan Brice oversees thousands of students in Duval County, even
the ones in jail. He says the goal is to keep kids learning in class, not learning these les-
sons the hard way. "What we as educators say to them all the time is that the time to find
yourself is not when you are sitting in a jail cell."
The event was held at the Outback Steak House at the Beach. 32-thousand dol-
lars was raised but the cost of handing out Ten-thousand books is close to $100,000.
So if you would like to sponsor a book to give to a middle school student it costs
ten dollars. You can e-mail Ken Adkins, KEN@THEADKINSAGENCY.COM. You can
read more about the book at www.talkingchains.com.

NJ Principal Loses Book Bet, Sleeps
On School Roof
December 08, 2006
A school principal
in New Jersey proves ,
that a deal is a deal! In
order to get his students
to read more, he made a
"lofty" promise, and taught his students a valuable
lesson in keeping one's word.
.Principal Scott Davies took his school litera-
cy campaign to new heights, literally.
He spent Thursday night sleeping on the
roof of the Harrington Park School, braving the
freezing temperatures in a tent.
The district's "10,000 Books Campaign"
began in September. Each of the town's 700 stu-
dents wqas challenged by Davies to read, and read
and read.
Davies agreed to bring a tent and camp out
on the school roof if the students could read all of
those books. A shaved head adorned with a blue
"HP" for Harrington Park were also part of the deal.
The students weren't expected to finish until
the spring.
The students reached their goal of 10,000
books last week, and randomly chose last night for
the principal's sleepover. No one knew it would be
the coldest night of the season.
"It's great when all the students get excited
about reading," said Schools Superintendent Dr.
Adam Fried.
Some students said they felt bad for the prin-
cipal who braved the elements Thursday night.
The plan for next year is to increase the
book goal and hopefully plan a campout on a night
in a warmer season.
The students aren't stopping any time soon!
They have already read nearly 13,000 books.

Teaching Children That It's Not All
About The 'Gimmies'
Instead of 'Ho, Ho, Ho,' parents should say 'No, No, No
(sort of)
Chicago (December 13, 2006) 'I want video
games, I want a new cell phone, I want a new laptop ...
Gimmie, gimmie, gimmie!' Sound familiar? It might to
some parents, especially as the holiday season is in full
swing. Child experts say kids are likely to cultivate a
strong taste for consumerism when parents aren't care-
ful with gift-giving.

I I


Jacksonville, FL -- The state's voluntary pre
kindergarten program is being offered as a reason
why five year-olds are performing better on literacy
readiness tests.
The Department of Education released
results of 182,000 children tested this Fall. In letter
naming fluency 70% of those tested are above aver-
age. In sound fluency the score was 64%.
Cathy Parker manages the VPK program in
Duval County. She says the literacy work being
done with four-year-olds is paying results.
Parker says in Duval County the letter nam-
ing and sound fluency scores were higher than the
state averages.
Next month, the state will release more
detailed information that will be helpful to parents.
The state is putting together data on each VPK cen-
ter so parents can evaluate the center's literacy
teaching techniques.

To help families contend with the 'gimmies' and
'maybe turn them into 'givies' PTA offers tips and infor-
mation for you to share with parents and families this hol-
iday season.
Bah Humbug!, it's never too early to demonstrate
generosity. Teach kids that giving is more important than
getting. The holidays are a good time for families to go
through toy chests and closets for items to donate to a
church, family shelter, or other charitable community
organization.
It's a wonderful life. It may sound corny, but the
best gift parents can give their children is their time. Kids
become lonely, depressed, and angry when parents give
them material items instead of their attention. Start a new
family tradition. Read holiday stories together once a
week, learn how other cultures celebrate the holidays, or
wrap holiday gifts for seniors.
It's beginning to feel a lot like ... a family. Most
people don't remember receiving an expensive gift.
Doing simple things as a family, like telling stories, hav-
ing dinner together, or singing along to holiday tunes,
leaves a lasting impression. Kids need to see that spend-
ing time with their family is more rewarding than spend-
ing money at the mall.

OUR


Tmrn Everyday Tools
Into Extraordinary Tools
O ne of the most popular tools in
the kitchen is the microwave
oven. Forty years since it debuted,
the microwave has become a kitchen
'staple for reheating leftovers or cooking
meals. Yet, today's version is not your -
mother's microwave. For example, new
SpeedCook technology from Whirlpool
incorporates advanced microwave tech-
nology with three other technologies,
providing four flexible ways to cook
delicious holiday meals and delectable
desserts in less time. Holiday cooks can
grill, bake, broil and steam, obtaining the
results of a traditional oven with the
speed and convenience of a microwave.
And, during the busy holiday season,
the Whirlpool Gold Velos SpeedCook
Oven, with its automatic sensors, can
serve as a sidekick chef. Just a few pushes
of a button, and the oven will know how
long to cook perfectly steamed vege-
tables, casserole dishes, baked goods and
more. The everyday microwave'has trans-
formed into today's extraordinary kitchen
helper.
Other kitchen staples can change from
ordinary to extraordinary tools just by
using them in different and innovative
ways. Brook Noel, author of the Rush
Hour Cook series, explains how:
Mix it up: Go beyond drinks and
maximize the blender by pureeing
soups and sauces to finish off holiday
* meals.
Simmer your way to success: The
slow-cooker can handle dips, soups,
Chili, mulled cider, stuffing, dessert
fondue and more.
SAdd some sizzle with your skillet:
Electronic skillets ..1 1 ih -.:rr_..
standalone system i, .. g .ii,: -Icl,.
Scious desserts or appetizers and keep-
ing them warm. Try meatballs as an
appetizer or bananas Foster as a
dessert.
Maximize your muffin tin: Muffin tin
compartments are the perfect size for
desserts and breakfasts. Use muffin

From Cooking "Flop"
to Cooking "Fix"
W hen bread is too stale for sand-
wiches and crispy cookies lose
their bite, experts say don't be
so quick to toss these goodies. Lyn Cook,
Chief Home Economist from Whirlpool,
comes to the rescue, turning cooking flops
into cooking fixes.
Cooking Flop: The bread is too stale for
sandwiches.
Cooking Fix: But, it's "fresh" for bread
crumbs! Make bread crumbs to enhance
meals by putting the bread in a food pro-
cessor with a little oil and salt. Spread the
crumbs in a thin layer on a microwave-safe
plate and microwave for 1 minute on high.
Stir the crumbs and then heat for another
30 seconds until the crumbs are toasted.
Use the crumbs to top casseroles, or to
bread poultry or fish.
Cooking Flop: Average pastry crust
doesn't add'flavor.
Cooking Fix: Create a crust with crumbs!
Use graham crackers, vanilla or chocolate
wafers, cookies or cereal. Bake the pie
shell for 5 to 10 minutes to enhance the
flavors and firm it up: Cool before adding
a favorite filling.
Cooking Flop: Cookies are too crisp
and thin.
Cooking Fix: Refrigerate the dough to
firm it up before cutting. Then, cut thicker
slices for chewier cookies.
Cooking Flop: Freshly baked cookies
aren't moist.
Cooking Fix: Add honey to the cookie
recipe to keep them moist.
Cooking Flop: Crisp cookies are turning
soft.
Cooking Fix: Reheat them in an oven at
300F for a few minutes.
Cooking Flop: Baked bars are a bust
with tough, hard-to-eat tops.
Cooking Fix: Mix dough just until
blended. Overmixing results in tough
bars with hard tops.

Class for Parents, No Parents Show Up


Jacksonville, FL One Chimney Lakes
Elementary parent went to her child's principal,
excited about a workshop she'd just attended on
protecting children from internet predators. The prin-
cipal liked the idea and invited a representative from
the Cyber Crimes Unit from the Attorney General's
Office. Hundreds of invites were sent to parents and
organizations in Duval and Clay Counties.
Monday night, one room in the school was
all set up, ready to go. But the room stayed empty.
"It was disappointing," said Verna Fields,
principal of Chimney Lakes Elementary. Parents
were supposed to walk out of that room knowing
how to protect their kids online. But, not one parent
showed up.
"I think it's hard for parents to monitor their
children when they're on computers'and they need
to know as much as they can about it," said Principal
Fields.
In her 13 years at the school, she's seen the
rise of computers, and the fascination from children.
"With parents working today, it's hard to get the
information that we were providing. So we decided
the school would be the perfect place and opportu-
nity where parents could get this vital information,"
said Principal Fields.
The empty room may be discouraging, but
Principal Fields won't let it discourage her. "The tim-
ing may not have been right, so we'll try it again!"
The Cyber Crimes Unit from the Attorney
General's Office says unfortunately, it often takes a
child vanishing in the area to get parents involved.
Many local private schools now make the
workshop mandatory for parents:
Principal Fields will reschedule the workshop
for the spring.

Ride The Rails To Reading

(NAPSI)-What began as a series of bedtime
stories, created bya father for his son, has young-
sters "on track," and has been fostering a love of
reading for more than 60 years.
With rich characters and exciting adventures
on the Island of Sodor, Thomas and his engine I
friends engage young children, inviting them to enter
a world of imagination through the tracks of a train
and the words of a story.
Now this "really useful engine" is full-steam
ahead on his greatest journey yet: inspiring children to "Come Ride the Rails to
Reading." Here are some tips for parents:
Read to your children every day and help them sound out words that
are unfamiliar.
Create an interactive experience during.story time. Add gestures and
special sounds to specific characters.
Encourage children to create their own stories or make up new endings
to favorite Thomas tales.
Be an example. Let your children see you read-a book, a magazine or
a newspaper.
Take a trip to the library. Help children look up new Thomas titles or
research more about trains.
"May the Best Engine Win" is available now, with new titles being
released at regular intervals. To learn more, visit www.thomasandfriends.com.


A "Bucket" Full Of Prehistoric Fun


NAPSI)-A popular television show that fires up preschoolers' imaginations-
by youngsters' love of dinosaurs-will now have them roaring with delight with
d on the show's delightful dino characters.
3ased on the best-selling books by British author Ian Whybrow and illustrator
eynolds, "Harry and His Bucket Full of Dinosaurs" features a 5-year-old boy
es the best discovery ever. In his Nana's attic, he finds a dusty and old but mag-
bucket in which he meets his new best friends-six toy dinosaurs with the power
im on adventures into their world: Dino World.. v
'he dinosaurs each have distinct personalities. Taury.the Tyrannosaurus Rex is
ithusiastic and very funny; Trike the Triceratops is the follower in the group,
eady to jump into any situation, usually without thinking; Pterence the
tyl is the youngest of the group and is always trying to prove that he is just as
is the older dinosaurs; Patsy the Apatosaurus is kind and considerate and revels
antics; Sid the Scelidosaurus is the scholar of the group and the one Harry turns
formation; and Steggy the Stegosaurus is everybody's friend, but he's a bit of a
nd not the brightest dino in the bucket.
larry and his friends jump into his magical blue bucket and enter into Dino
here every experience is enchanting. Created through Harry's imagination, Dino
World has such magnificent places as Pillow Hill, Clown Mountain, Pepper
Rock, a river of orange punch in Soda Valley, and a Dino-mobile vehicle for
Harry and the dinos to get around.
Each 11-minute program-produced by CCI Entertainment-is filled with
funny, wonderful new adventures for Harry and his dinosaurs. The imagi-
native stories, which air on Cartoon Network, are designed to take children
exactly where they want to go-into the world of dinosaurs and into a safe
world of friendship, cooperation and adventure that is filled with lots of fun.
Warner Bros. Consumer Products and CCI Entertainment recently chose
Fisher-Price to create a toy line-up that features a broad range of toys for 2-
to 5-year-olds,. including basic figures, talking figures, Dino-mobile vehi-
cles, Dino World mini-playsets and plush toys. The talking figures will cap-
italize on the primary dinosaurs' distinctive personalities through unique
sayings and sounds.

National School Traffic Safety Poster Contest to Award Over $18,000


TAMPA, FL (December 13) Students in grades K-12 are invited to participate
in the 63rd Annual AAA Traffic Safety Poster Program national competition, which will
award 52 prizes totaling $18,400.
"The poster contest was created to educate all students on traffic safety
issues that affect them," said Sojeila Orengo, manager of traffic safety programs for
AAAAuto Club South. "But the ultimate goal is to reduce traffic and pedestrian crash-
es, the number one cause of death for children ages three to fourteen."
Students are asked to design posters that support the following safety themes
designated for their grade division:
Primary (Grades K 2): Pedestrian and Child Passenger Safety (i.e., Proper
use of booster seats, night time visibility, etc.)
Elementary (Grades 3 5): Getting to School Safely (i.e., Helmet use, interact- -
ing with motorists, obey your AAA School safety Patrols, etc.)
Junior High (Grades 6 8): How to be a Good Passenger (i.e., Buckle up, don't
distract the driver, dangers of using a cell phone, etc.)
Senior High (Grades 9 12): Safe Teen Driving (i.e., Alcohol awareness, distract-
ed driving, aggressive driving, etc.)
The judging criteria for posters will be based on the relationship of the entry
design to traffic safety practices, the originality of how the idea is expressed in the
design, and the visual and creative impact of the design.
High school students also have the option of presenting a poster, graphic arts
electronic submission, or an audiovisual public service announcement of one to two
minutes. The message should caution drivers to avoid the many dangers facing teen
drivers today. PSA entries must be submitted in DVD format only.
The top entrant nationally in each of the four grade-level divisions will win the
Grand Award: a $5,000 Visa Gift Check for the Senior High winner and a $1,000 Visa
Gift Check each for the three winners from grades K-8.
In the second category of awards, Regional awards, the states are broken
into four regional groups. First, second, and third-place prizes will be awarded for
each region with $300, $200, and $150 Visa Gift Checks respectively.

Poster Program.
All contest entries for students in Florida, Georgia, Puerto Rico, and the west-
ern two-thirds of Tennessee should be submitted to AAA Auto Club South, Attn:
Traffic Safety, 1515 N. Westshore Blvd., Tampa, FL 33607 by January 26, 2007.

Police Throw Party for

Special Needs Children



t.Wv




4'





The lunch was served by uniformed officers and the
SWAT team. The officers say they receive more than,
they give. Seeing smiles on the kids faces are more
than enough.
Jacksonville, FL Santa made a grand entrance
at the Jacksonville Fairgrounds as the Fraternal Order
of Police held a special party for special children.
The holiday tradition spans 58 years where offi-
cers make Christmas happen for children.
This year's party was for 159 special needs chil-
dren from local schools.
Officers helped more than 150 special needs
children from Duval County off buses at the
Jacksonville Fair Grounds. Wednesday. The ride was a
special treat because the buses were escorted by
Police Motorcycles.
Officer T.R. Hightower was among the officers
who bonded with children, making sure they got to see
Santa and get their gift. Hightower says, "It means a lot
to see smiles on kids' faces."
The children and the officers sang holiday
songs together. Then lunch was served by uniformed
officers and the SWAT team.
The officers say they receive more than they
give. "I think if the truth was known the kids get a little
bit out of it, but the officers get a lot more," says Vick
Groner with the Fraternal Order of Police. "If.you don't
have the Christmas spirit you come over and spend the
day with those guys you will have it before you leave."
And the big highlight was a visit from Santa. The
police car drove in with lights and siring blaring with
Santa on the hood.
Each child gets a gift specifically selected for
that child's wants and handicap.
This Saturday, the Children's Christmas Party of
Jacksonville will be held at the Prime Osborn
Convention Center.' More than 10,000 children are
expected for that party.

Good Samaritans Not Good

Jacksonville, FL i thought they were a pair of Good Samaritans. D
But, the two men who offered to help jumpstart my car were a couple of.
crooks, said Demetria Bennett.
Car trouble left her stranded at a gas station on North Main Street
Tuesday. When two men pulled up and offered to help. At first it seemed .
like I was in luck and will probably get going soon, she said. "They asked
me if I needed help and also asked if I was okay?" she said.
"They were so nice. 'Well, we can help you,"' one of the men said,
according to Bennett. "So the one guy said that I needed a jump,
because when I .turned the key, the engine wouldn't crank," she said. She thought may be she could
Bennett says she started to get jumper cables from her backseat, Good Samaritans. But, instead,
but one of the two men insisted she stay put. He got the cables himself. they turned out to be "Bad
They tried jump starting the car, but the jump didn't work. Sat rn
The guys drove off, and Bennett called for a taxi. Bennett saysS
she was going through her purse to get her wallet out so that she could pay the cab driver when she discovered
her wallet wasn't there.
Instead of boosting her battery, those so called Good Samaritans boosted her wallet. "They were supposed
to be helping me, not robbing me!" Bennett said.
She says inside the wallet was almost $1,700 she had saved up to make two .past-due mortgage pay-
ments. Now, because of the trust that she had for those,two "Bad Samaritans," she is in deeper trouble and not
just car trouble, she said.
Now, with the holidays coming, her faith in friendly neighbors has been tested. She now must get.money
to fix her car and money to save her home.
Bennett said, "they could have been mechanics, you never know? Being stranded and needing help, I let
them help me. So, the help that they gave me was not the help that I wanted or needed!"
She says the two men took off going North down Main Street in a beat-up white pickup truck. Police say
the store did not have a surveillance camera that could have picked up the theft .
If you know anything about this crime, call our partner, First Coast Crime Stoppers at 1-866-845-TIPS.
You'll remain anonymous and could be eligible for a reward up to one thousand dollars if your tip leads to an arrest.

Ask Deanna! is an advice column known for its fearless approach to reality-based
subjects!
Dear Deanna!
My fiancee and I parted ways earlier this year. After separation,
we realized we want to be together and started the relationship
again. I stayed faithful and wasn't with anyone but he had sever-
al intimate flings. I'm having second thoughts because he refus-
es to have an HIV test with me. He claims that I know his habits
since we were together so long. I agree, but he was the one sleep-
ing around. Am I wrong to refuse this relationship because of the i
HIV testing?
Anonymous (Dallas, TX)

Dear Anonymous:
You have a responsibility to take care of yourself first. There's not that much love in the world
to make you forsake your sexual health. You're entitled to refuse taking the relationship further
if his sexual activity during the break-up bothers you. If he takes something as serious as an HIV
so light, you need to think how he would handle major issues in the marriage. Set a deadline,
stay firm in your request and if he doesn't comply, move on to other things until he agrees to
testing.
********* *** ** *

Dear Deanna!
I've been dating my existing girlfriend for less than 3 months. I regret that I met her before the
holidays because she feels we need to get into the spirit of gift giving. I can go along with this
but I don't plan to purchase a digital camera, an I-pod or any other expensive items she wants.
I've tried to have this discussion and tell her that I have a spending limit but she thinks I'm kid-
ding. I'm sticking to my plans. How do I avoid an argument when she opens her gifts?
Tyrrell (Cincinatti, OH)

Dear Tyrrell:
If you've communicated your intentions then you have nothing to worry about other than pout-
ing. Your new girlfriend is still in the "getting to know you" phase and should see from the
beginning that you are firm, consistent and a man of your word. If she's too materialistic or
immature to see this, then you should start your New Year off as a single man. If she chooses to
argue, then wish her a happy holiday and keep it moving.
******************

Dear Deanna!
I'm in a holiday battle with my husband's previous family. His ex-wife feels he should be at her
house at 7 in the morning to have breakfast and open gifts with the kids. I don't think so. My
husband and I don't have children and I want him to spend the morning with me and then go to
his kids. He and I are arguing and this is causing a major strain in our household. I'll never keep
him from his kids but this is a bit much. Am I wrong to make this an issue?
Ms. Lois M. (Birmingham,AL)

Dear Ms. Lois:
You're right to take a stand on this issue. No married man needs to be at nobody's house at this
time of morning unless it's work related or an emergency. You should make the suggestion for
him to arrive at 10:00 and if he misses breakfast and torn wrapping paper, they'll get over it. His
ex-wife should plan the children's gift exchange with their father at a better time and offer
brunch instead of breakfast. This should be fair and settle the issue for everyone.

Commentary: At Their 20-Year Reunions, Will Today's Teens
Recall Days Worth Celebrating?
By: Tonyaa Weathersbee
Courtesy of BAW.com

By now, I didn't think I'd be all that big on high
school get-togethers. So what was it that recently made me
swallow some Robitussin to keep my coughing at bay and
endure the chilly night air to attend yet another Christmas
dance organized by my high school classmates of nearly
three decades ago?
I guess it's because the older I get, the tougher it is _..
for me to pass up the chance to treasure-hunt.
That's what I find myself doing whenever I find myself at these yearly holiday gath-
erings. Those are the times when I get to mine for nuggets of memories from back in the day
-- nuggets that the years have hammered into gold.
There were my former cheerleader buddies, Zalia and Regina, who forced me into
not claiming the cold that was threatening to sap my fun by coaxing me to join them on the
dance floor in doing the cha-cha slide. Their enthusiasm made me think of the days when one
of the biggest worries I had was in making sure that I had mastered our cheerleading routines.
I was a better gymnast than dancer, so I always risked being teased mercilessly for missing a
step at the pep rally.
There was Monica and Joyce, who managed to find a second calling for their smarts
and their worker-bee habits as the architects of our yearly dances and class reunions. There
were the former football players and the perpetual jokesters, some a bit grayer and others a
bit paunchier, but all of who managed to find something to love about their school decades
after the Friday night lights had gone dark.
And absorbing it all made me think about how lucky we all were. Lucky because we
lived long enough to see our high school days as times worthy of celebrating. Around my
classmates, I got a respite from thinking about all the isms that black people have to confront.
What I got instead was a profound sense of joy and normalcy. I wonder how many of today's
black high school kids will be able to do the same.
Like many of today's teenagers, we had our share of worries. Our school, Raines
High School, a football powerhouse that was originally built as Jacksonville's black model
school, was grappling with the challenges of desegregation. We were also dealing with the
other stuff that is part of the teenage experience; being teased or being ostracized by cliques,
and being pressured to prove one's worthiness by landing a guy or girl that filled the fantasies
of others. But most of us got through it all -- with help.
Many times,'that help came from parents who helped us to keep our teenage angst in
check and to understand that the prospect of being teased for wearing a knock-off brand of
sneakers was not a crisis that warranted staying home or stealing. And if that help didn't come
from parents, it came from teachers and other caring adults who understood that most of our
pain was growing pains. They nursed us through those pains with extra doses of guidance and
confidence -- all of which prevented us from trying to deal with it in ways that would carry
a body count or create other self-destructive habits.
For the most part, what they did for us worked. Despite any teen angst, most of us
managed to find friendships, as well as a fit for our talents, our competencies and our dreams,
in high school. It was an important part of our lives.
But for many.kids today, things are different. Different because in many ways, the
predominantly-black high schools such as the one that nurtured my classmates and me now
serve neighborhoods of strangers. The teenagers who attend them are youths who move
around a lot because their parents are following housing and jobs, and whose lives are more
transient. They are besieged with high-stakes tests, and for many teenagers, both black and
white, their lives are governed by issues that go beyond growing pains. The city of Boston,
for example, recently unveiled a survey that revealed that nearly 90 percent of its public high
school students had witnessed acts of violence, while almost a third said they had a family
member killed violently.
But there was good news. Sixty-one percent said they felt hopeful about the future.
To me, that means they're not nihilistic, and that they want to graduate and go on with their
lives. But I hope that in spite of it all the pain, they can find the space and the camaraderie
that they need to overcome it -- and later find things to celebrate about high school.
Because even if those years are filled with more challenges than fun, they still can
come back and celebrate the fact that it was a challenge that they met and mastered. And to
me, the high school years are too significant a chapter in a person's life to find nothing valu-
able -- or for that matter, even salvageable -- to revel in.



As We Know It

November 1, 2006

There are precious few times indeed when we have
the opportunity to be in the presence of true greatness.
For Moses Foster, President of the Doin' It Network
and host of its Black business program, Doin' It -- a rare
brush with greatness occurred when he visited Dr. James
Sylvester Gates, the John S. Toll professor of physics at the
University of Maryland. j
The meeting is chronicled in the video series, Doin'
It, at www.doinitnetwork.com.
Dr. Gates is currently the first black man to hold an endowed chair at a tier
one research university. As a PhD student at M.I.T., Dr. Gates completed the pro-
gram's first ever dissertation on supersymmetry, and it has become his life's work.
Still theoretical, in 2007 a machine that has the potential to bring empirical
support to the field will be turned on for the first time. If what Gates believes to be
true is confirmed, the laws of physics as we know them may be completely rewrit-
ten.
Moses Foster had the opportunity to visit with Dr. James Gates on the cam-
tus of the University of Maryland to talk about his work, his family, and his true pas-
sion for physics.
From the very beginning the Network promised to tap into the best Black
minds from corporations, entrepreneurship, consulting, and academia. We continue
to fulfill on that promise by bringing intellectual superstars to the table like Dr.
Gates. He's been interviewed before, and featured on programs like NoVa, but I don't
believe anyone has gotten to the true essence of who Jim Gates is prior to now.


The Doin' It Network to date has included an XM Radio program, an interac-
tive website, and live speaking engagements all dedicated to Black professional
excellence. The video series rounds out the network's reach.
We're excited about adding our video unit to the network. Obviously web
video is a powerful new channel for delivering content to African-Americans, and
we're happy to be the first Black business web video series. We're shooting all our
footage in hi definition, so we're absolutely ready when we launch this programming
on cable television as well, says Foster.
Other high profile featured guests on the new web series are scheduled to air
over the next few weeks General President of the prestigious Black-Greek organiza-
tion Alpha Phi Alpha, Darryl Matthews, and Sundown Towns author, Jim Loewen.

Foster Children Get Christmas Gifts From

Local Businesses

Over 2,000 foster children across
Northeast Florida will spend this holiday sea-, -
son with unfamiliar people and places, accord- .
ing to the Guardian Ad Litem Program, which
provides a voice in court for children who have
been victims of abuse, abandonment or neglect.
But the program is working with the
nonprofit board Voices for Children of the First Coast on an annual hol-
iday project to bring gifts to foster children for the hol-
idays.
Many children enter the foster care system .
with few belongings. Most foster parents, who open 7 .'.
their hearts and homes to these kids, sometimes taking o
in several children at a time, are given only a monthly *N
stipend to support the children and can not aftford to
give the children all that is needed.
"I have represented children that come into a foster home with nothing more than the
clothes on their backs," said Bob Anderson, a Guardian Ad Litem volunteer. "It is not uncom-
mon for children to lose all their possessions when they are moved to another foster home.
Any gifts then become a very special occasion for that child."
Volunteers have been working to find individuals and organizations that would like
to sponsor a foster child. Several businesses, including the fitness facility Curves, have put up
Christmas trees with the names of children written on snowmen attached to the tree. Each
snowman lists the name of a child and his or her age. It also lists their clothing size and things
they would like. Some children request presents like Legos, but older children usually want
what all kids their age want, electronics.
Within the first 10 days, three of the Beaches' Curves locations went through 90 chil-
dren and were requesting more names. Gifts have already begun piling up. At the Neptune
Beach Curves, boxes, bags and oversized stockings were stuffed with goodies. One anony-
mous shopper bought a kid a new shiny, red bike, just as requested, with a bow on top. And
not forgetting the details and the law the shopper strapped a Spiderman helmet to the bike's
handle bars.
Volunteers are not required to purchase what is on the child's wish list. And some may
opt to give older children gift cards so they may purchase what they really want.
"There's nothing worse than not being home for the holidays," said Diane Teti, a case
coordinator with the Guardian Ad Litem Program. "We feel so bad. We can't send the kids
back to their homes, but this is something we can do for them."
Individuals or businesses can sponsor a child and wrap the gifts themselves or make
a monetary donation and the Voices volunteers will do the shopping on behalf of the donor.
Donations are still being accepted. For more information on the Guardian Ad Litem
Program and the Voices. holiday project, call 630-1200 or e-mail Eileen.Candelaria at
Eileen.Candelaria@gal.fl.gov.

Student Tardiness Gets Attention

Jacksonville, FL -- Elementary
students who arrive late to school and
check out early are -expected to see the
rules change for their families.
The Duval County School Board ..i
on Tuesday will consider changing policy
on the how schools will handle those
absences.
Since August the district has doc-
umented more than 145,000 tardy stu-
dents in elementary schools.
The policy now being considered
would have parents notified in writing
after three late arrivals in a grading peri-
od. Absences beyond that would require
a meeting with the school's principal or
guidance counselor.
If the number on unexcused absences or early check outs exceeds six dur-
ing a grading period; parents and their child would be referred to the Attendance
Intervention Team. An option available to principals in these cases would be
Saturday school.
"When a child shows up late or a child leaves early it's cutting into strictly aca-
demic time," says Lake Forest Academy Principal Kim Bays. "There's not any fluff
time being wasted."
If the school board approves the changes they would kick in Jan. 8, 2007.

St. Johns County Launches

New Offender Alert Program

St. Johns County, FL Knowing where sexual offenders and predators live in
St. Johns County just got easier Wednesday.
Wednesday afternoon, The St. Johns County Sheriff's office launched
Offender Watch. .
"This is an Internet-based tool that
allows our citizens to go onto the Internet
which empowers them to stay informed,"
Sheriff David Shoar said.
Here's how it works: you can log onto
the St. Johns County Sheriff's Office website
at www.sjso.org, type in an address, and a ,
map will show you where sexual offenders ':.,
and predators live in a certain mile radius of
that address.
The Florida Department of Law
Enforcement's website does something similar, but the Offender Watch program
goes a step further.
"What Offender Watch gives us now is it comes to you.
You don't have to go to it," Officer Keith Oke said. "If you sign up for email
alerts, and we encourage you to do that, this information will come to you when you
check your email."
You are able to get alerts about areas surrounding any address you put in,
whether it's for a school, a babysitter's house, or a little league field.
This Offender Watch Program is paid for from confiscated drug money in St.
Johns County. The costs $7,000 a year.

ssSHHHH!


The


(Aries March 21st thru
April 19th) Monday and
Tuesday you're
number one, top
of the charts. It's
like your face is
splashed across billboards
throughout the land. You are
the one. Your reputation
makes strangers want to
know you. And you're inter-
ested in knowing other peo-
ple -- in particular, faraway
people. You want to see the
world. Use your connections
to work toward your biggest
dreams this week. Going
somewhere exotic can, para-
doxically, have a grounding,
effect. Saturday or Sunday,
someone you know
announces that they want to
travel with you. This is the
best idea that's come along
in a while.
(Taurus- April 20th thru
May 20th) A philosophical
approach can
certainly make
your life seem
More amusing
and more like a play than
real life. But Watch out for
pretension and righteous-
ness on Monday and
Tuesday. In the middle of
the day on Wednesday,
something happens that
alters your perspective -- it
may be as small as a confus-
ing comment from a friend,
or something bigger.
Thursday and Friday are
great days, full of more
small revelations -- tons of
them -- that would be hard
to articulate to anyone else.
There's a certain pleasure in
that. Your weekend could be
described as a series of radi-
cal ideas.
(Gemini May 21st thru
June 21st) You really don't
have to wonder
%\hat your days
have in store for
you on Monday
and Tuesday, because out-
comes are up to you. Your
days will consist of whatev-
er you want them to contain.
That said, don't foist your
will upon other people, or.
they may foist bad feelings
back. Wednesday afternoon
is a turning point in your
week: Suddenly the simplest
thing may become unman-
ageably complex. Thursday
and Friday. no one offers
you any information about
what they're thinking --you
have to coax it out of them.
You hate.that. Deal with it.,
This weekend, your social
gears are oiled and conver-
sation comes effortlessly.
(Cancer June 22nd
thru July 22nd) You're
having a hard
time allocating,
resources and
deciding on pri-
orities at the start of the
* week. Monday and Tuesday
are halting, taxing 'days. Do
something to get your blood
flowing. A brisk walk?
Push-ups? Wednesday
brings about a turn toward
introspection. You decide
that maybe you don't want
to' go. to the movies
Wednesday night after all.
Or on Thursday or Friday.
Or, if you do go to the
movies; you feel like going
'alone. (There is a certain
comfort in doing that.) This


weekend, \%hen you try to
re-engage socially, someone
else will be in the mood to
S go their own way.. Funny
timing.


(Leo July 23rd thru
August 22) Flipping idly
D through a maga-
zine at the start of
the week, you find
yourself burning
with the desire to see Belize,
or Costa Rica, or Russia.
The microcosm of civiliza-
tion that immediately sur-
rounds you is starting to
wear on your patience, and
the idea of faces you don't
recognize sounds thrilling.
The desire to travel is con-
nected to the desire to get
into shape for you, but
there's a difference between
the two things, in many
ways. One big one: Wed
through Friday, anyone's
happy to hear about travel,
but no one really wants to
talk fitness. Vanity is to be
avoided this week and
weekend.
(Virgo August 23rd
thru September 22nd)
You feel like a
caged animal on
Mon and Tue --
not caged against
your will, but caged by your
sense of obligation (most
likely to your family). You
take your responsibilities
more seriously than most
people do, which is why
you're destined for great
success. But this seriousness
can make certain afternoons
boring. Thankfully, Wed
afternoon and .all of
Thursday and Friday are not
boring in the least. There's
some laughing. There's
some romance. (Lots, actu-
ally.) There's even serious,
ambitious dreaming about
.the future. This weekend,
nothing stands in your way.
(Libra September 23rd
thru October 22nd) You
have a bunch of
stuff on the stove.
right now, and
everything's
looking good. There's a lot
going on. Your friends are.
pitching in to help, your
family is excited about the
things you're doing and.
you're getting the support
you want. ,When every-
thing's going so well, it's
strange for the tide to change
suddenly, but that's what
happens midday on Wed.
Thursday and Friday, your
sentimental side..gets the
better of you, and you feel
weird for vague reasons.
This is, thankfully, an anom-
aly, a random bump, a noth-
ing. Come Saturday, you're
productive and glowing
again. Sunday is a treasure.
(Scorpio October 23rd
thru November 21st),
There's too much
riding on the risk
; to justify it to
your more con-
servative friends on Monday
and Tuesday. But if you real-
ly feel like taking it, and you
have it in you to deal with
the consequences come
what may, well, go ahead.
Proceed with care. Wed
through Friday, you're
focused on managing sever-
al factors related to the risk,
and on managing relation-
ships. Your boss figures
strongly (and is in a good
mood) toward the end of the
workweek. It is an exhaust-
ing week -- ambition is


exhausting and produces tir-
ing anxiety. You have a
weekend in the domestic
reanm that's exhausting, too.
Tinfe for a nap!


p(Sagittarius November
22nd thru December 21st)
You make people
so insanely happy
on Monday and
Tuesday that no
matter what you're doing --
be it work-related or school-
related or chore-related -- it
feels like a party. That's a
sign that you're doing some-
thing right. Keep doing what
you're doing. The party,
metaphorically speaking,
breaks up sometime around
Wednesday. You spend
Thursday and Friday around
fewer people, but you
remain in a euphoric, curi-
ous mood. This weekend,
craving conversation and
contact, you end up meeting
a perfect stranger (or sever-
al) and becoming fast
friends. You're great at hav-
ing a good time. Keep it up.
(Capricorn December
22nd thru January 19th)
Monday and
Tuesday you're
occupied with
finding contain-
ers for your wild, abstract
ideas. How can you pour
your energy into a project
that makes sense to the out-
side world? Or that furthers
your career? Or that means
something? The seeming
impossibility of it is stagger-
ing, but also makes it worth
doing. A surprise success in
the middle of the day
Wednesday is auspicious.
Thursday and Friday are an
uninterrupted string of suc-
cesses. By the time the
weekend .rolls around,
you're looking for ways to
get more done and nap at the
same time. Now if you
could pull that off ....
(Aquarius-January 20th
thru February 18th) You
have enough
room at the table
to squeeze a few
more people in,
absolutely. That's your atti-
tude 'on Monday and
Tuesday. Not everyone has
the gumption you do, and
your willingness to take oth-
ers under your wing will be-
repaid tenfold. As the week
continues, it presents more
arid more' challenges.
Wednesday is confusing,
Thursday is a total mess.and
Friday is apocalyptically
dramatic. Thankfully, you're
not invested in the drama, so
your response is only a very
general tiredness. It isn't
until the weekend that you
get to have some fun. Lots
of it, actually.
(Pieces February 19th
and March 20th)
Disagreements
are surprisingly
useful on Monday
and Tuesday.
Someone else's, perspective
doesn't contradict your per-
spective; it simply gives
yours dimension. That's how
you should think about it.
Competition is good, and it's
not personal. Wednesday
through Friday provide
plenty of chances for you to
prove that you're not out to
get anyone, and that you're a
sympathetic person willing
to give what others need.
These are good things to
demonstrate -- especially
during a week when convic-
tions are strong and feelings


run deep. This weekend, all
you feel like doing is help-
ing people. Keep up the
good work.


GOSSIP SECTION



HE COULD NOT RUN FAST ENOUGH -- An officer observed a car traveling south in
the 5800 block of Avenue B Street, turned east onto Wilberforce Road and ran the stop sign
at Paris Ave. Then the car drove east in the westbound lane of Wilberforce. At that point, the
officer initiated a traffic stop. The car quickly pulled into a driveway in the 2100 block of
Wilberforce and the driver, TCB, who was wearing a cameo jacket, immediately jumped and
started running north. An unknown passenger got out and stood near the passenger's side of
the car and eventually left.
TCB ran around the east side of the house and the officer ran around the west side.
Another officer arrived to help and observed TCB running wearing the cameo jacket. When
the first officer approached the suspect behind the house, he realized the officer was near him
and started trying to take off his cameo jacket. TCB was ordered to stop but he refused and
ran back around the house, ran across the street and through two yards which led them to
Morehouse Road. TCB still would not stop even though the officer continued to tell him to
get on the ground.
Finally, TCB was able to get off the jacket and throw it down in the backyard in a yard on
Morehouse. When he ran up a driveway on the southside of the street, the officer used his
taser gun to stop him and took him into custody.
The officer then took TCB back towards his car and through the yard where the jacket had
been thrown which was about forty feet away from where he had taken the suspect into cus-
tody.
When the officer stopped to pick up the jacket, TCB began running again, going about fifty
feet before he was apprehended again
The officer searched the jacket and found a large amount of ecstasy pills in two plastic bag-
gies, marijuana, crack cocaine, and powder cocaine in the left front pocket.
When the officer read TCB his Miranda warning, TCB said the jacket did not belong to
him. and that he had not been wearing it. He also said he knew nothing about the drugs.
However, the officers located a.digital scale with residue in the center console of the car.
TCB'said that the car belonged to his aunt; he did have valid driver's license but the tag on
the car did not match the vin number. The car was towed per the owner's request.
It was reported that TCB is a member of a named gang. He was arrested.

SHE SAID HE GRABBED HER -- An officer was flagged down by SM stating that she
had been battered. SM said that she was walking down the sidewalk in the 9400 block of
Norfolk. The suspect, LH said, SM, was sitting on a car on Norfolk. He approached her and
said "You don't know who you messing with, I'll kill you." She said he then used his arm to
grab her around the ihroat and pull her down the road, while he was still yelling at her. She
said he then let her go as she approached the officer at a nearby traffic stop. She stated she
knows who the suspect is but doesn't "know him like that." She could not tell the officer
how she knew LH. She felr he approached her because of an incident that had occurred
between she and his girl friend.

HE CLAIMS SHE STOLE HIS MONEY -- An officer was called to the 1000 blockiofE.
11th Street in reference to a battery.
The officer did observe an abrasion on SR's left cheek bone. She stated that she returned
from the store and saw CW standing in front of her house. She stated she asked him to leave
and he refused. SR said the next thing she knew, he had hit her in the face. SR said she did
not know why it happened.
When the officer read CW his Miranda Rights. he claimed that he had been drinking at the
house on llth Streel arid passed out. He said that \\hen he woke up. and his moneN\ %as
gone and the wallet was sitting outside. He said he confronted SR about stealing his money.
He said she grabbed a knife and started pointing at.CW and that is when he pushed her away.

NEIGHBORS CALLED ABOUT AN-ASSAULT JSO was called to the Forest Garden
Apartments on 103rd Street by neighbors because they heard a loud verbal argument coming;
from one of the apartments. They said it sounded that the \ ictim was being-severely beaten
by the suspect. When the police aTri ed, the suspect. GKM had left the complex.
When the officer talked with the victim, SS, she stated that she has been dating GKM for
two years. She said that he was asleep at her apartment and that she was bothering him while
he was sleeping because she is "playful." She said that GKM( became upset and grabbed her
arm.whereby a verbal argument ensued. SS stated that they both became engaged in a loud
verbal argument and she yelled "let go of my arm."
The officer observed a scratch on SS's right arm where GKM had apparently stretched her.
SS stated that the scratch was a result of GKM grabbing her but that she did not want him to
go to jail because it was her fault since she was bothering him while he was sleeping. SS
refused to provide a written statement. ;
Another officer conducted a traffic stop at 105th and Blandirg and stopped GKM. When
he spoke to the officer, he said that he. was laying \\ ith his girlfriend in bed watching TV
when she began to hit him and tell him that she hates him. GKM said she started calling a
"b" and a 'mf'. He said he then said to her. "f) ou and she then pushed him. He said she
then decided to take a shower and then they began to argue while she was in the shower.
GKM said that SS told him that he "would regret this" and that she can do whatever she
\\ ants to in her apartment.

THE SUSPECT WORE A BLACK SKULL CAP WITH EYES CUT OUT-- WJM said
he arrived at his girlfriend's house at about 11L05 and parked his car in the driveway. After
he closed the gate he started to walk up the walkway to enter the house and was startled by
an unknown black male pointing a black handgun at him, wearing a skullcap mask with the
eyes cut out. The' ictim.stated that the suspect started asking hin what he had. The victim,
said that he put his hands up while the suspect searched him and took, his wallet which con-
tained some credit cards and other items. The suspect then told the victim to walk to his' car.
At that point, the victim started yelling for someone to call the police. The suspect started
running westbound on 27th Street. The victim pursued behind him. The victim said that he
ran after the suspect until the suspect turned around and shot at him. After the shot, the vic-
tim stopped and called the police from his cell phone that the suspect dropped while running.
The officer was given all of the requested information to be broadcasted to other officers in
the area. The officer requested that he be shown where he was when the suspect shot at him.
The victim said that he was standing in front of a house in the 1800 block of W. 27th Street.
The officer could not find any sign of a shooting.

The 11th Annual Multicultural Prism Awards Gala Honors


Diversity!

By Rych McCain,
feedbackrych@
sbcglobal.net
The Minorities In
Business Foundation
Inc. presented their 11th
Annual Multicultural
Prism Awards Gala
recently at the Sheraton
Universal Hotel in
Universal City,
California. The Red
Carpet arrivals featured
some of our most loved
urban stars.
Unfortunately, 95 per-
cent of the mainstream
white press packed up
and left when they found
out that Tyra Banks was
not going to show. Banks
had a work schedule
conflict that she had to
honor. She did send a
videotaped apology and
message. Banks won the
Producer of the Year
Award. Since this is a
smaller Black Awards
Show (even though they
honor all races and cul-
tures with awards for
their participation in the
work place and commu-
nity diversity), the main-
stream white Press looks
down their noses at it.
They only show up to
pick the "cream-of-the-
crop" or "superstar,"
"cross-over" blacks
which is usually only


Photos 2006 by Andre' B. Murray/www. bernagency.photoreflect. com


one or two personalities
that they have deemed
worthy of note to high-
light. One white photogra-
pher made the following
verbalization to me as he
was packing his gear; "No
Tyra Banks? Well the rest
[referring to the other
urban stars], is just 'stock
footage!'" That's how
most (not all), of the main-
stream press view our
beloved black stars! That's
why it is such a painful
stab in the back to us black
reporters when our so-
called stars lick up, cow-
towel and cheesy grim to
the folks who care less
about them and ignore us
who will actually build
them up in print.
Another sore point was
that the organizers of the
Prism Awards i.e., The
Minorities In Business,
Inc., need to get their act
tighter as far as organizing
this event. There were far
too many gaps, loose spots
and way too much apolo-
gizing (every five min-
utes), for goof-ups that
plagued the ceremony
throughout the entire
night. I know my style of
reporting this side of the
story is not popular and-
will not be appreciated by
some, but you all know
that Rych calls a spade a


spade! I tell it like it
actually happened.
So those that don't
like the truth get it
together next year
and I'll report that as
well!
There were some
great bright spots
during the night,
such as good pre- *
senting and hosting
and the talent was
exceptional! The
house band cooked,
vocalist Angelique
was sexy and allur-
ing, Brian McKnight
weaved his romantic
spell on the ladies,
The House of Adonis
dance troop from Toledo,
Ohio burned a hole in the
stage and vocalist Ruben
Cannon (Nick's brother),
wowed them with his
smooth vocals. Rych
McCain's Personally
Hand-picked Family Of
Chosen Child/Teen Actors
were represented well in
the house. This included
the Massey brothers, Kyle
and Christopher, with
Kyle being a presenter and
nominee for "Outstanding
Actor in a Television
Comedy" ("That's So
Raven," Disney) and
Chelsea Tavares, nominee
for "Outstanding Actress
in a Television Comedy"


Tia Mowery.
("Unfabu ous "
Nickelodeon). They did
not win but KeKe Palmer
did win "Breakthrough
Star of the Year" for
Akeelah and The Bee.
Despite the event's
poor organization, and
the mainstream white
press snub; the urban
stars turned out in big
numbers and the black
press got busy. Together
with the guests, we had a
ball and made it a good
night of fellowship, food,
drink and fun anyway!

New Baby:
Showbiz parents Rugg
and Sabina Williams wel-
comed a new baby girl,
Sereneti Williams into the
world on November 29,
2006. She weighed in at
71bs, 12 ozs. Sereneti's
two older brothers are
teen actors Oren ("Cold
Case"). and Zachary


("Romeo") and of course
members of Rych
McCain's teen/child act-
ing family mentioned
above.
Movies:
The Holiday stars
Cameron Diaz, Kate
Winslet, Jude Law, Jack
Black. This is a feel good
film if you are into
romantic comedies. The
main story line is about an
English woman and an
American woman who
trade off living in each
other's homes for two
weeks during the
Christmas Holidays. Both
are trying to escape the


pain of breaking up with
their boyfriends.
They each go through
a series of "off-the-cuff'
situations where they both
meet a new man. This
brings them back into a
new relationship. The
film is even paced and
does hold the. viewers
interest. Amanda (Diaz) is
the more erratic of the
two women. Iris (Winslet)
is more charming and
down to earth but is the
most vulnerable one emo-
tionally. The men Graham
(Law) and Miles (Black)
are typical males who
somehow find the com-


mon ground to become
compatible mates to the
ladies. The outcome is
quite pleasing. This is a
ladies film for ladies. The
subject matter is water
cooler or lunch talk for
women about men. Guys,
brings some tissues and
romance your lady by tak-
ing her to this one if you
want to "get over" for the
evening and save the ruff
shootem' up, head ban-
gin' action stuff for anoth-
er night.
